Re: power brakes or non power brakes?

A $30 each difference? So one way it cost $15 each and the other way it cost $-15?

If I acted like some of the people here do and ran to someone when ever my feelings were hurt I would have been called a sissy and then ridiculed for that as well. I suppose I just grew up in a time when we were all tougher and turned out to be men and women instead of staying crying children.

Re: power brakes or non power brakes?

Well, My truck doesnt have power brakes and the pedal is about 10" higher then the gas pedal. My knee hits the steering wheel everytime I brake, and I have to have the seat back all the way. Maybe if you have this problem you have non-power brakes..lol

Light travels faster than sound. Thats why some people appear bright untill you hear them speak. 'Im not a mistake, Im an achievement".

Re: power brakes or non power brakes?

thanks for the replies guys
Yes, i have driven the truck, but it was sitting in a dudes backyard for 2 years and wasn't driven, went out and started it up every so often, but that didn't help anything else on the truck... hell, by the time im done it'll be all brand new parts haha.

And yes, i have the brake booster, which i figured was for power brakes, but i rarely work on american made cars, so i didn't know if there was anything weird and different

Thats what you find on imports.
